Quality auctions online – How to place a bid

You need to log into your account before you can make a bid on an online auction. → Create your account

Placing a bid on a quality auction online
Read through the description of the item and note the town from which it will be transported before placing your bid. You will have two chances to confirm your purchase. Remember that all bids are binding.

Maximum bid
You can also state a maximum amount you want to bid for the item. Every time a new customer places a new bid, a new bid will be made on your behalf, in the smallest possible increments, with your maximum bid as the ceiling. You can choose to be notified by e-mail or via a push message to your iPhone if you have our app installed, if you are not the top bidder on an item on which you have bid.
